Force Cannot Solve Rwanda-Congo Crisis – Kagame

The president of Rwanda, Paul Kagame, has called for a political solution to the crisis in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.

 

In an interview with the state broadcaster, he said the current hostilities couldn’t be solved by force alone.

 

Two weeks ago East African leaders ratified the formation of a regional military force in the troubled region, amid a resurgence of rebel activity and heightened tensions between DR Congo and Rwanda.

 

Kigali accuses the Congolese government of shelling its territory. Kinshasa accuses Rwanda of supporting M23 rebels.

 

On the migrant deal with the UK, President Kagame said the country had space for Rwandans as well as other nationalities.
